LEAGUE RULES

You must be a fully paid up, first claim member of the club to compete in the Road League.

Club vests must be worn for all Road League races, excluding Parkrun and the Club 10 mile.

Road League positions are based on chip rather than gun times.

The Road League consists of 21 events. Points are awarded for your position relative to other Pensby Runners.   The first woman and first man home for the club will be awarded 17 points, the second 16 points and so on, down to 3 points.  In races where more than 15 Pensby women or men compete, the maximum points available will be raised, up to a maximum of 22 points.  For 21 or more runners 3 points will be awarded to any runner finishing in 19th place or lower.  Any runner starting a race but not finishing will be awarded 1 point.

A competitor’s final score will be the sum of their eight best scores (assuming they have run more than seven races).  For competitors who run seven or fewer races, their final score will be the sum of their scores. Club kit should be worn for all races, except the club 10 mile.
